I don’t think I’ve said much on Dangerous Thinking about my Diabetes – I was diagnosed as Type 2 just before Christmas 2010.
After more than a year working with my diabetes nurse and GP to get my medication right, I ended up on one Gliclazide tablet a day and three Metformins. That’s not far off needing to inject Insulin, some have said.
One of my goals for 2012 was to become purely diet-controlled, that is, come off all diabetes medication.
Some form of low carbohydrate diet makes a lot of sense for diabetics, and being a borderline geek, I decided to give Tim Ferriss’ Slow Carb diet in his book The Four-Hour Body a go.
In less than three weeks, I’ve been able to come off all my diabetes medication, after my blood sugar levels have plummeted.
Time for celebration, I think. Thanks Tim!
